Motorbike accident claims
Driver behaviour and the law
“Serious injuries are all too common in accidents with motorbikes. We’ll always aim to secure interim compensation to cover the cost of rehabilitation and loss of income.

A large part of any accident claim is establishing who was at fault, in motorcycle accident claims this can be more difficult to prove. Motorcyclists often filter within lanes and ride on the other side of the road. In the circumstances of an accident, a motorcyclists is more vulnerable to injury.
We’ll usually begin our motorcycle accident claim investigation by asking you or your representative to collect and supply as much information as possible. If you feel like you may have been partially to blame, you have to let us know, we’ll use that information and plan for it when putting your case together.

We will need to establish the specific details of your situation. We may ask some of the following;
- Were you in the driver’s blind spot and did they carry out full observations before manoeuvring?
- Do you have any footage of the accident from a helmet or dash cam?
- Were there witnesses to the accident and did you collect their details?
- Where were you riding at the time of the accident? Filtering? Overtaking?
- What do you think caused the accident?

We secured over 10 times what the insurers offered
How we secured over £100,000 in compensation for an injured cyclist
We acted for a forty year old man who was knocked off his bike on the way to work, resulting in him sustaining serious multiple fractures of his foot and ankle. We argued that as a result of the accident, he was going to face substantial problems in following his chosen career path as an IT Consultant due to ongoing future problems walking and standing.
He had a career plan which was to start working in London on a freelance basis but could not stand on busy trains, in and out of London. As a result, his future earnings were reduced significantly. The case was defended and legal papers issued and was eventually settled for a substantial 6 figure sum, ten times the figure initially offered by the insurers of the other party.
In situations like this it’s very important that you work with solicitors like us who have extensive experience of securing compensation and ongoing care for victims of serious motorcycle accidents.
